-How to care for Graptopetalum Rainbow Candy-
Sun/Temperature: To make Graptopetalum Rainbow Candy pink, make the stems and leaves more compact and full. Daily rearing time, light can not be lacking. If the light is insufficient, Graptopetalum Rainbow Candy is not only difficult to thrive, but also easy to get leggy. To make them thrive, the stems and leaves are compact and plump. As long as the ambient temperature is above 41°F and below 77°F, it can be exposed to light all day long. At least 4-5 hours of light should be kept every day. In hot summer, the light is strong, do not put in direct sunlight, otherwise easy to burn the leaves.
Soil/Pot: Choose a breathable and permeable pot, a mud pot. The bottom of the pot should have permeable holes. When mixing soil, more particles should be used, which accounts for more than 70%, because a high proportion of particles is conducive to color and shape.
Watering: At the early stage of maintenance, we can adequately water Graptopetalum Rainbow Candy to speed up its growth. When its rods grow long and thick, we can control the watering frequency. Once the soil is completely dry, water it thoroughly. Wait 3 to 5 days after the soil dries out before watering again. This will cause the old leaves at the bottom to gradually fall off due to controlled watering, making it easier for the plant to grow into a succulent tree.
